    Hi, has the turntable got a preamp inside it because if it hasn't it would need to be connected to a preamp first so that the signal is boosted so the speakers can be driven. In regards to the turntable its difficult to evaluate without seeing a picture of the connections and the setup, usually if its just a record deck the player would have a hot and a cold and a ground so that it can be connected to an amp. If you can send me pictures of the connections then I can find a slolution for you.

It is difficult to say with 100% confidence because the pictures are out of focus, but it looks like you have just a regular turntable. The wire connections you show are the bridge between the tonearm and the external RCA style cables. The extra wire (#5) is the ground wire. You should be able to connect this to any receiver that has a phono input.

For confirmation, can you update this with the model number of the turntable? That will allow me to confirm what I have stated above.

Amp 230v 50hz I have blown 3 Amps so far in less than 6 mos.

As long as you are not connecting say an 8ohm amp to 4ohm speakers and the speakers are in good condition, the problem is almost certain to do with the speaker wiring. It could be that the connections are being touched together, perhaps by someone (a child) or a pet messing or moving the speakers or wiring, or some old or bad wiring. Any touching of the cable wires, will blow the amp!

Where do I connect the speaker wires?

Because your amp has 4 channels on it on side A you can connect 2 speakers for left and right and the B you can do the same. your red is positive and black is negative. so in total you can have 4 speakers connected to your amp
